Sheriff’s Department makes one of the largest heroin busts in history

WICHITA, Kansas – Sedgwick County Sheriffs arrested two men on Highway 54 after finding several pounds of illegal narcotics when pulled over for a traffic violation.

Deputies made the arrest on August 21st around 11p.m. when two pounds of heroin and 3.5 pounds of methamphetamine were found in the 2004 Chevy Malibu.

The driver, 76-year-old Agripino Lucan of Turlock, California, and his passenger, 36-year-old Frank Mendez of Stevenson, California, were booked for possession with intent to sell.

Deputies said that the two were headed to Minnesota.

Officials said the two pounds of heroin was probably the largest seizure in Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office history, with estimates of the bust being $250,000 from the heroin alone.

The officials also said that the 3.5 pounds of meth was also a very large seizure, but did not give a street price.
